Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship

SPIRITUAL FRONTIERS FELLOWSHIP is an organization founded in 1956 by medium Arthur Ford to focus the attention of the Christian Church on the insights and contribution psychic phenomena could offer it.

The mission statement of the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, whose headquarters are in Philadelphia, is to ‘sponsor, explore and interpret the growing interest in psychic phenomena and mystical experience within the church, wherever these experiences relate to effective prayer, spiritual healing and personal survival’.

A similar organization – the Academy of Religion and Psychical Research, based in Connecticut – is also devoted to an exchange of ideas between religion and psychical research. Despite encouraging signs of an overlap, mainstream Christianity remains disinterested in the psychic world.
